Simon Backhouse, from estate agents Strutt & Parker, said: ”You can see as far as France. At this time of year the view is better at night when you can see the lights of Calais twinkling in the distance’

Simon Backhouse, from estate agents Strutt & Parker, said: ‘From the road the house isn’t a stand out property, driving past you wouldn’t necessarily notice it.

‘But what the owners have done to it is turn something ordinary into something extraordinary.

‘The way they have styled the garden and house is just incredible.

‘You come into this amazing reception room, which even on a dull day is full of light. It has these picture windows that are 32 sq ft and the views really do look like pictures.

‘The sea is framed by the windows but you don’t just acres of sea, in the foreground you have greenery which softens the view and is just wonderful.

‘You can see as far as France. At this time of year the view is better at night when you can see the lights of Calais twinkling in the distance.

‘The house has a very Italianate garden, with the pool, it is very clever how they have created a Mediterranean feel.

‘That south east corner of Kent, when it’s cold its’s very cold but in the summer you often find that little part does have a completely different climate and good weather. I think the sea breeze brings the warm weather in with it.’
